InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has lots of strengths that have made it the engine of choice for numerous PHP-based software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single row to perform a specific operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. Put simply, appending new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back in case some problem appears in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
